John Legend Announces Christmas Album, Tour
Do you love John Legend? Do you love Christmas? Then you will surely adore the upcoming Christmas album that John Legend has announced he’s planning to make.
Legend took to Instagram today to tell the world about the album, which he says he’s been planning for a while.
“This winter, get ready for A Legendary Christmas! I have a brand new Christmas album coming out accompanied by #ALegendaryChristmas Tour!”
The fit seems appropriate. It’s something John Legend has been kicking around for a while. Looks like he finally pulled the trigger on making it.
In the Instagram video, he explains, “I’ve been wanting to do it for a long time. I went to Raphael Saadiq and I was like ‘Brother, can you produce it for me?'”
The album will be fourteen tracks, and won’t all be Christmas classics. According to Legend, there will be eight classics and six new songs. We can surely expect to hear those new ones playing over PA systems in malls from now until the end of time.
Legend released a thirty-second preview clip of his cover of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” on his homepage. There is also a clip of one of his new songs, “Bring Me Love,” that you can also find.
Fans won’t have to wait long for the tour – Legend is already planning 24 shows in November and December. That’s a busy touring schedule.
